"And also with cushman and Wakefield, he's chairman, and here's a few things to say about both. Bruce, I've seen you on Fox business a few days ago. And you were terrific Real cheerleader for New York, tell us what the heck is going on in the real estate business in New York and are we making progress over falling backwards? So John, the reality is that we're dealing in Manhattan right now with demand from corporate America that is off by about 40% over year. It's notable that last year we had 35 million of take up, which is just about at the ten year average. So one year ago, decisions were being made. At the moment, corporate America is on pause, looking to see what's going to happen from a macroeconomic perspective geopolitical perspective and watching interest rate movement and the potential for a recession. So they're on pause. That said, we are seeing demand for the in a flight to quality to the new development to property that has been reinvested in. So by and large, there's been a bifurcation in the marketplace. I look for the second half of the year to be better than the first half, but the bottom line is this. The pause is temporary. We know people are back to work. We're 50% occupied and rising. There has been a structural change in the hybrid workforce, but that means people are coming in two to four days. It's not going to change the footprint materially. Right now, what's on pause is demand, not the value proposition. And Tom de Napoli says sales tax that was budgeted for $17 billion in April came in 40% less at 10 billion. That 40% number seems familiar with your 40% number. Well, and I think John, it's reflective of people's apprehension about the market and about an impending recession. So when sales tax is off, you're looking directly at what the consumer is thinking about. So it's to be watched, but the flip side is really twofold. One, tourism is up. Well, as the co chair, the Intrepid, we track numbers very closely in terms of tourism. This year, our volume is close to where we were pre-pandemic, but not quite there. So we know tourism is back. That's a good thing. Flip side, we can't ignore the fact that with rising interest rates and the potential for economic downturn, it is causing people to be more cautious. That's temporary. John, I think the broader issue is New York as a whole to your point, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, even in some cases Monday. We're back. You can't get a reservation. You can't get into a show. The vibrancy is clear. As opposed to other gateway cities, look, I don't want to say anything negative about some folks out on the West Coast, but at the end of the day, we're in very in a very different place. And in much better shape, you know, John, it is a very difficult time. I have no doubt in the long run that will recover. Just as people forget, and we want to talk about the negative, but we are 50% back in terms of occupancy. 70 is full occupancy from the reality perspective. And I'm going to tell you that a year from now, we won't be talking about occupancy. People will be back. Even in the hybrid workplace, people will be back two to four days a week minimally. And maybe more. So now the other item is when you talk about tourism, the mayor made a statement the other day that 50% of the hotel rooms in New York are occupied by migrants. Where are the tourists going? Yeah, you know, John, I don't know, because I don't track those numbers, but I think what the mayor and the governor have been saying is that we need help from the federal government and there needs to be a much broader plan as to what to do. I think the mayor has his hands full. I praise him for all the hard work he's been doing to keep New York at the top of the heap and at the end of the day doing the best under very difficult circumstances. And at the end of the day, we are all immigrants and so we have to have compassion, but the bottom line is federal government has to help us. Absolutely correct. And I agree with you. Now, enough with that, it's Memorial Day weekend. You're very much involved with the Intrepid. You had a beautiful event the other night, tell us about what you're doing for Memorial Day weekend and how you respecting our veterans. So John Memorial Day is that sacred day where we are honoring those who've made the ultimate sacrifice. It's the day where president Kennedy reminds us where and to quote him, it's to assure the survival and the success of liberty. And those that make that ultimate sacrifice are recognized on Memorial Day. We hosted each year on the Intrepid, we're honored to do so. It's the least that we can do. And it also reminds us that the price of freedom is not free. That people pay a very dear price so that you and I and others can live and prosper in a free country. And this is the day to remind everyone that it comes at a cost at a very high cost. And we're very fortunate to live in the United States of America. I agree with it. We all agree a 100%. Bruce Bruce mosler, I commend you for everything you do for our veterans, especially with cushman and Wakefield. I commend you on your wisdom and I commend you on trying to help New York come back and we'll catch up again real soon. Thank you, John. Thank you for everything that you do. So quietly and so anonymously but nevertheless you do it. God bless and God speed and we'll see you soon. See you soon. Today, from noon to 1 p.m., he's one of America's most prominent political consultants. Holster

I think it was a couple of January's back two years ago, was it? It was, it was in 2020 and you know what, it was out of the given of the end. We had a large fire, then we had two storms, and then with a global pandemic, our new space is very long, so the fire now, yeah, it kind of pales into comparison to the others. But the fire we got a phone call, so in Wakefield council, we have a duty emergency manager, which is the person who was the first part of Carl. And there were not 5 by west Yorkshire fire and rescue that there was a fire, could they go down to sight, the lady called Michelle, she went down to side and it was they had to evacuate over 300 properties because of the fire and it was large by the geography of the fires, a place called speedy bake. Which is right in the center of Wakefield's right next to all the main roads. Next to a large residential area as well. So if you imagine the planter's milk coming up from a bay three thick black smoke, we didn't actually know what was in the smoke at the time, which was one of the hazards. So what we did is we found an incidence rate. So we came together and we set up a command structure cell strategic operational and tactical command structure and we came together and we did a coordinator response from in Wakefield one. So we had within wafer one, which is main council building. We had representatives from areas within the council that would respond as well as people literally at sight as well. So once again, it's a very much a partnership working working very closely with west Yorkshire fire and rescue with west Yorkshire police and the ambulance service and we have regular meetings on the hour every hour for a situation update and it was declared a major incident at first, but then stood down. But we had, for the council, it was the first time that we had to establish what color reception center. So a place that's safe for residents that have been evacuated from the properties, even though we've talked about them theoretically. We've never actually opened one in terms of an emergency. So that was it was really good to do all that and to put our plans into practice and thankfully they did work. So people that were displaced from their homes went to, it was a spark center that we allocated as a reception center. They were there from 4 o'clock in the afternoon till about 11.

Exploring Attachment Patterns in Relationships With Chelsea Wakefield
"Our attachment patterns are something that is almost unconscious because they're so early they have to do with our early experiences with Caregivers and whether does experience this fell relatively secure. Whether we have the kind of responsiveness that we needed or feel safe. And welcome in the world or whether they were inconsistent or sometimes they were even dangerous. So when i talked people were back. Their early. lives I find that some of them as little kids were really really focused on their parents and they wanted to know how to please them. What are the parents lawn and needs that. They could stay in alignment with them and do not get in trouble or get the kind of attention that they were longings for that creates something called an anxious attachment pattern where the lottery. Johnston is hyper focused on the other and the needs of the other and every little nuance of that other person. That indicates that there's a message then. Maybe they're displeasing them or perhaps that other person has gotten a little bit different her distant because they feel overwhelmed by the attention they start your more insecure and afraid of abandonment so that's one type of attachment patterns that we call anxious and the other type of detachment pattern looks more independent but it's also insecure attachment patterns and these are the children that grew up learning that it was best just to go to their room and read a book or play video games and they sued and settled most of the way along.

Educational skills are quite low. That's not a problem. That's easy to fix. Wakefield college offers everything from vocational courses in engineering and hair and beauty to adult education to programs for the unemployed to full honours degrees. The college is desperately trying to address the skills problem wakefield faces. But sam right. It's head is forthright about the challenges they face. There's a lot of deprivation. it's a fact that if you live in one of those deprive moore less likely to achieve as well as some of your peers and that can be done to things like resources.

We see a lot of people who want to start with and they are possibly the first person in generations. Go on to secure a higher level qualification. What do you think health things back when it comes to educational attainment realtors a lot of straight churn on how some of our programs are delivered so for example. If you were a school leave. A new was coming to study on a full time program from school. The is an expectation that you need to reset your english and maths as part of your program that can prove quite challenge for some of our lower level. Learners often failed at school. The quantum college to re sit sometimes woman's twice. Maybe three times. And i think for me. There's a huge question around. Does it need to be jesus english maths or is it actually about delivering literacy numeracy. I think certainly if you look at the amount of money that's spent on on those resets on the delivery of some of those young people question around is remote away to develop those absolutely essential skills and people learn different levels. Don't the different rare sanita stopping the flexibility to really recognize and support that so in the sense places like wakefield a bit more flexibility built into the system to deal with our own particular problems you know you saw a look this expectation that you leave school you'll get a five hundred s sees tuned english marchuk onto college. Do level three qualification. Maybe that say levels all the two years or of a casual qualification over two years and then you ready to progress onto the next step. So maybe that's university and and that's far from the picture in wakefield because we see so many young people would not leave in school with the five g attitude towards education lead to catch up quickly. I think sign. I think it's that commitment to lifelong learning as well that it isn't about leaving school coming to college say i ever turned eighteen.

Have revamps in the awesome. Spending statement was revamped. And it's kind of designed to allow it to look more seriously places that need leveling. What does that change in practice. We hopefully get rid of the systematic bias where for money approach to analyzing infrastructure projects essentially automatically gives easier path of approval to successful places with a lot of people. And that's at the core of the whole dominance of london greater london in the southeast. Those is much of the rest of england and by specifically changing it to allow full analysis of productivity enhancing investments immediately takes attention so the places that have the weakest productivity if it's being seriously pursued over the long term that is really important for the infrastructure part of leveling up like me.

Brexit camp owner is deal and that remains a possibility but how autrey be affected to find out i asked the writer and art market specialist ivan question and former. Mvp current chief executive of the british chamber of commerce in brussels daniel donaldson daniel before we talk specifically about the art trade and brexit's effects. Let's let let's get a state of play. Where do you see the negotiations now. Well i'm actually still pretty positive. I think actually more or less the deal is done. The question now is how will that date is choreographed. On both sides of the channel to ensure the politically they can get through on both sides. So i actually think the deal was probably more or less agreed at the start of the week. The question now is the uk gay some concessions on northern ireland earlier in the week. I think that was the first stage. The prime minister met with commissioner of on the land on wednesday night. And i think that also was the next stage of of Of this i think you will find that. The eu will grant some concessions on the level playing field over the weekend and the uk will grant some concessions on fish. I'm then. I think we will more or less dale semi. That's the feeling that the Getting in brussels now this could all still Blow up You know the politics of this is still very very delicate. But i think contrary probably what you you see in in some of the media online. Pretty confident that we're still on course for a deal early next week. What do you make these contingency announcements from the that. We're talking on thursday lunchtime in the uk and this morning. The have set out some some aspects of sort of contingency planning. I suppose the portents of that suggests that that no deal was more likely but do you think that's a bit of a smokescreen. Then i think the you is just covering it. It's back because it did the same thing before march last year when when there was the first deadline anthony e you needs to make sure from its point of view that certain things can continue in the case of no deal so for example. Airline routes can continue. Some of these sort of things need to be done so these are more or less the same contingency measures that they put in place just over a year ago when we had that first potential Deal situation. i'm i do think also that You know given the fact that this is going roy down to the wire at this puts a little bit more pressure on the uk to make sure that you know if they were gonna be concessions made. They need to be made very soon. Okay i've what do you think the chief concerns of the art trade are what what information do they need. And what guarantees. They need for this to be something that will stop panic and allow them to continue to trade in the way that they would like to. So i've actually been speaking to people on the ground on what we've been getting a lot. Actually in the market media is A lot of detailed from trade associations and from lawyers and shippers. And that's what we haven't been getting is what is happening on the ground. How do people feel so. That's what i've been focusing on and actually the biggest thing is obviously uncertainty.

Yeah. How often do you have a great idea only to realize everybody else's having the same great idea that's what's happening here folks since the early days of the pandemic stationary bikes, treadmills and streaming workouts have been hot commodities demand for one item in particular has driven scarcity dumbbells just try and buy a set the goods a newsletter published by Vox, says, we're in the midst of the great American dumbbell shortage. All right. So it's not like we're talking about a shortage of life saving drugs but if staying fit means not just health but sanity to to you, a dumbbell shortage could be a very serious thing. We feel your pain. Here's what happened according to the fitness fanatics experts at box think way back in your memory on March fourteenth the president declared the pandemic, a national emergency that was A. Friday the very next day ushered in the weekend that America changed. Colleen. Logan. Of icon health and fitness told Box Logan is vice president of marketing for the company which owns nordictrack other fitness brands that weekend they started seeing what she called crazy crazy sales every day in March sales doubled compared to March twenty nineteen. They quadrupled in April and were up six hundred percent higher in May Logan said. Rival bowflex was also inundated like Nordic track. bowflex sells weights along with bigger, more expensive equipment like bikes and treadmills less well known businesses that specialize in strength training are also struggling to meet demand. Visit S PRI site and you'll see sold out labels on Dumbbell after Dumbbell try to buy kettle bell iron balls with handles, and in many cases retailer rogue fitness won't even give you a ship date instead up POPs vague. Notify me button. The level of demand is unheard of as inside Hook writer Tanner Garrity noted people don't even buy this many dumbbells in the middle of winter when they're cooped up and drafting fitness resolutions. The result of these shortages predictable prices are high according to vox a pair of fifteen pound rogue dumbbells that usually costs forty dollars is currently listed on Ebay for one hundred, sixty, nine dollars. The shortages point to a much bigger issue in the American economy before the pandemic, the vast majority of Kettlebells dumbbells and other free weights were made guess where China? That's right China closed factories and highways from January to April when the sudden unexpected surge of interest occurred here. America's existing supply of weights went fast due to closures in China. Well, no new ones could be made much less ship to America. Now, Chinese factories are open again, but they can't keep up with the outsized desire a few companies including. Rogue. Have turned to small American iron foundries to make them here. But few of those foundries are interested in making consumer products like kettlebells. It's expensive and difficult for them to gear up and they fear retailers will give the business right back to China. Once the global economy is fully open again in the meantime experts say the boom and at home. Workouts is no flash in the PAN ninety percent of Americans who work out say they'll continue exercising at home according to a survey by Wakefield research for some those at home workouts will continue to replace the gym. Others will simply add Jim visits to their routine. Regardless that means booming sales and continuing supply chain headaches for Nordic track bowflex and the light. For the lowly exerciser waiting and waiting for that adjustable weights set to arrive it can also mean getting creative. What else can you pump besides iron weights? Well you could try the technique.

Hey all I'm eve and welcome to this day in history, Class A podcast that flips through the book of history and tears out a single page every day. Today is June seventeenth twenty twenty. The Day was June seventeenth. Eighteenth forty-three. A clash between British emigrants and Mary known as the wire incident took place on the South Island in New Zealand. It was the first major armed conflict between Maori and British immigrants after the signing of the Treaty of Tonky. The new. Zealand company was a British. Joint Stock Company responsible for the colonization of New Zealand in the eighteen hundreds. It's and director Edward Gibbon.

In May of Eighteen, Forty Lieutenant Governor William Hobson declared British authority over New Zealand. Since the Treaty of Weitang, he was signed. There has been debate over its terms, interpretations and differences between the Mary text and the text. The treaty was meant to recognize Mary ownership of their lands and give Mary people, the rights of British subjects that said many Maori were later dispossessed of their lands. Anyway the New Zealand Company promoted the country as a Briton of the south, and it began to organize large scale migration to New Zealand. But the fertile land required for all the Europeans migrating to New Zealand, did not actually exist. The company was failing. Because arable land was limited land titles were uncertain. There were two mini absentee landowners, and there was no real way to generate income through exports.

Throughout the early eighteen s more European, emigrants Nelson despite conflict between Mary chiefs over claims to the land being sold.

bit more now nate back tonight he loves facts and Rod Sabra about prey animals and creditors he knows pray must group together up but only got one friend made through proximity over personality who's that friend this Kinda Merrick he lives in the unit across the I live in a group share a group of units so they've been friends for the last six years America ways comes to the wind I never to the front door and they kind of consider each other friends by accident but there's much more to it than that it's a very deep in bonding friendship now he also has very difficult family life but nate describes his maters he has to control his tim pump he is trapped in a body the can't control his mouth he does Merrick gets into situations quite often he's rather would rather jump in and swing than doc in means and he'll he'll bite into situations that he however which he has no control and drag night along with him well these two out the only dis- ebbed teens in the town in suburb where they all made with this I've placed beside places is youth which is pickle of many youth centers I think around Australia I've been to a few and they will they will have the same feel that I think the kids that guy here the ones who don't have the tribe quite often or who who's hyme life is is just not safe this they need somebody to be able to just do things like h occasionally shower you fall asleep on a couch without wondering whether it's unsafe that kind of thing may see when you said you visited youth areas somebody like my see I think the best youth where the work has a lock my st in that they come from within that world and have an undisturbed deep understand adding of it so that the exchange between the youth workers and the children is much more honest in Ecuador as opposed to do gooders hanging in and trying to make changes without really understanding what these kids are up against so macy's sort of by her look and not so much growth authority but by her ability she controls this up people do feel safe there she's a survivor and the thing that kids since that they understand all just looking at her that she's she's been warned she's come out the other side of it and therefore they willing to follow her right we'll sort of night comes here too series homework and rod his nights he loses some pages of his notebook what happens then which is terrifying for him because the the things that he brought Newsnight booker intensely personal and never meant for anybody else to see or hear so he's lost lost a couple of pages and then a few days later one of his superiors graffiti on the wall to as is a way of protesting the post punk leisure of of the Santa suspect he immediately suspects tash a young lady who goes to the youth center he has some rather superior skills and she she is she doesn't hide the fact that she thinks he should stand up more for what he believes in and actually fought for the things that he cares about she's always more removed often she's she's scary really and look apologies to listeners but if you've witnessed disgruntled teenager the best way to just described as nate does is she has a fuck fuck off ice that's exactly what she deploys regularly graffiti leads the possibility of the youth closing down and this is a pretty safe place because school really isn't sport is the arena for bullied and quite often night has the blood noise or whatever but there is Mr Reed there's yes he's the English teacher who are rather deliberately right as Stereo taught in the beginning of the book and I had a bit of fun with that are made him out to be Must Robin Williams Caricature but I guess the point of that was to flip it later on when he realizes that he's altruism doesn't really come from a good place he's come from a private school he wants to make it changes help these kids and but he's reasons for doing that PEPs a little misguided he doesn't really understand the world they come from and he needs to deep he needs to understand his reasons for being so flips not quite so selfless after or anything can they have an exchange in a way of moving forward
Jalen Ramsey's troubled Jaguars tenure ends with blockbuster trade to Rams
"Terms of Jalen Ramsey will talk about this he finally got what he wanted the end result the disgruntled corner headed to the Los Angeles Rams the Jaguars finally relented and Ramsey to the west coast for first round draft picks two of the one in twenty twenty one in two thousand twenty one also a fourth rounder in the two thousand twenty one draft here's a statement for Jaguars executive VP. Tom Coughlin given the situation with Jalen we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars for this season and well into the future we feel the trade that we struck with the rams gives us great value for the next two drafts and remain confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title Jalen Wasser Productive Flair but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los A- Angela here's head coach Doug marrone obviously I had a good relationship with him and we were working together to get them healthy on the field and that that's what my focus was so he can get on the field and help us you know win football games and now you know how concentrating on on the players gotta here and and getting our guys focused on on on Cincinnati I think in his league nothing ever really surprises me anymore you know especially from the business side of things I found out like everybody else did last night you know lately point Dave came in and told me Rams reporter Lindsey theory joins us from L. A. and Lindsey listen there's been a lot of coming and going and all Ryder roster changes what's the general reaction to all of the news from the rams this week Wendy for a team that's three and three and in the mid of a three game losing streak certainly renewed buzz and energy at the team facility this morning now I am told the Jalen Ramsey is in route to Los Angeles and he's expected here later this afternoon or the rams do expect that he will pass his physical and I am told that he could be on the field for them as soon as Sunday against the Falcons now this would be viewed as a move where the rams are going all in once again to try to make a repeat super bowl run but I am told the Rams really believe that this is a move for their long-term future keep to leave and Marcus Peters or playing the season on expiring contracts Ramsey has another season left and the rams do intend to sign him to a long term engine now as you mentioned he's not the only new face here at the facility today Kenny Young Austin Corbett also were here they have passed their physicals though remains to be seen if they will be at practice later this afternoon and one more note Wendy Safety John Johnson is headed to injured reserve because of shoulder injury. Lindsey thank you it was a rare blockbuster trade a few weeks now before the trading deadline Ramsey joined a small handful of veteran players traded for multiple first round picks in the last third two years or so Khalil Mack and Jay Cutler garnered big offers from the bears the dolphins move two first rounders for Ricky Williams and it too big halls to get Herschel Walker an Eric Dickerson listen we can go back to the jags but since June Ramsey is moving onto the rams let's start with what he means for the La Rams Right now we'll Wade Phillips now gets a play defense the way he wants to Wakefield's really wants to play in your face on the line of scrimmage with the defensive line pressure and then in your face on the live with men cover corners. He hasn't been able to do that to be honest with you with Marcus Peters Marcus Peters is not not played good man to man coverage needs a better zone corner so now wade having Jalen gets the opportunity to get back to Colin defense the way he wants to do it I'll be really interested to see if they use Jalen the way we want I bill belichick thrill reverse where you put him on the team's best number two receiver and then everybody else gets to get double teams opposing for the opposing offense but it makes their defense significantly best Champ Bailey the dion sanders I mean the great quarters you can do that lock him up and then roll the other side I think you'll see that the other thing that was curious for me was that Tom Coughlin mentioned that Jaguars were better this year and going forward I think maybe either that was miss written or because they're not speak they're not better by getting a great player out of there so I miss quotes tim so expe- Joe Joe Listen you were you were spot on Jalen Ramsey never changed his stance which is what you asserted from the get-go and I would assume just finally came to a point where it just made no sense to have him on a roster when he wasn't going to win this transaction happened yesterday the first thing came to my mind is how often the people I was always talking to that this was going to work out for Jalen Ramsey like there was no fretting I didn't hear any fear and now that this is resolved itself in the way that it has it kind of plays into the tone that I've been hearing all along now I was talking to a source obviously familiar with Jalen Ramsey. They said that he's excited considering this a fresh start to be with the rams I think one of the questions that I had in talking to ram source last night was why not hold onto Marcus Peters to have opposite Jalen Ramsey in terms of making this movie now one thing that the ram source said to me is that it looked like it was clear that less need did not want to pay marcus. Peters beyond this year he's eligible unrestrained the free agency next year and it was better just to rip off quote unquote the band-aid now so then it becomes well who is opposite Jalen Ramsey for this game against the Atlanta Falcons they mentioned that two thousand seventeen when cal Roby Coleman I came to the teen that he did fill in for a keep to Leon outside first and second down and then on Nichols would have him excuse me on third down having a nickel or sometimes have troy hill on the outside and then have an RC in the middle so expect something like that or combination of that against the Falcons either way Julio Jones saw the rams problems in the short turn no because the opposite of the ball is atrocious right now and that's been there issue as far as being a front now what I will say is it does play into them getting better though like we can focus on golfing what this offense has been doing but with the guy like Jalen Ramsey not only does he hell Aaron Donald give him a maybe a half a second more to get to the quarterback he also may be able to steal a possession to for you and this ninety four was out there so air down gets another piece on the back end that can help him hold off quarterbacks for a second for him to get there and that's that's really all I can think about so maybe you
A Fiat Chrysler Merger With Renault Would Create 3rd Biggest Car Maker
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from American pest as the leading provider of safe, sustainable pest control solutions across the DMV. Let American past help you to take back your home or business from menacing pests visit them today at American pest dot net. Fiat Chrysler is proposing a merger with the French automaker Renault, Reynaud says it's considering it, this merger would be a big deal. It would create the world's third biggest car company after Toyota and Volkswagen. Here's NPR's Camilo domino, sqi, a merger this big would be striking, but not totally surprising. Fiat Chrysler has been looking for a partner for a while. And there, there are limited partners available. Michelle crabs is an analyst with auto trader and Cox automotive. She says, meanwhile, the French Renault had a long standing alliance with the Japanese automaker Nissan that was working. Well, and then things went awry, when former CEO Carlos gone was arrest. Sted in Japan for alleged financial misdeeds and things have just been unraveling now both fiancee's and Reynaud are eyeing their options when it comes to who though partner with as they prepare for big changes in the industry. Many major, automakers have already been partnering up over the last couple of years. There are two reasons first after years of record growth. The auto industry is starting to slow down and that decline is expected to continue. Meaning fewer car sales less revenue at the same time, automakers need to be making big investments in the future things like electric vehicles and self driving cars, and it's a tough one, because you're investing in something that isn't profitable today isn't going to be full tomorrow, but might be profitable might be essential in ten years time. Mark Wakefield is an automotive consultant at Alex, partner's upstart companies like tesla and even ride hailing services like Uber and lift. They're bringing new competition. In response established carmakers are closing ranks towards each other to be able to share costs and to be able to invest through this like on. That's really what's driving a lot of these merger discussions in partnership discussions to Reynaud has been making electric vehicles for years, while Fiat Chrysler, has been lagging behind its decided to focus on money-making brands like Jeep, and ram, big pickups, and SUV's. Plus, it has premium brands like Maserati Reynaud is pushing smaller low cost vehicles Fiat Chrysler thrives in the Americas. Particularly in the United States. Reynaud doesn't sell cars in North America at all. But it's a major player in Europe and Russia that also like a pretty good fit. One has small cars in the other big trucks, one offers luxury vehicles. The other goes down market, but they feel have problem which is trying to Felipe Munoz is an analyst at auto researcher Jada. Dynamics. He says, neither company has a foothold in the crucial Chinese market. Then there are the practical problems of merging and not in another culture. I know the more factories that's more people to teach to work together, which Fiat Chrysler, has to do already since the merger that made it back in two thousand fourteen Blyleven cries which are Italians on American that way only but he's not an easy thing. And it would be even harder if you try to preserve the French Renos alliance with Nissan of Japan, another complication Reynaud is part owned by the French government and has strong unions. The want to preserve local jobs, Fiat Chrysler says the deal if it happens would not result in any plant closures. Camilo dominancy, NPR news.
Volunteers Fight Bad Science
"Now, we're gonna look at the staying power of bad science and a group of volunteers trying to fight it. Take the infamous nineteen ninety eight study by a British scientists that suggested a link between childhood vaccines and autism. It was retracted more than a decade later and its author. Andrew Wakefield had his medical license revoked, but the myth that vaccines cause autism persists today with serious public health consequences. It's this kind of bad science that James Heather's is constantly looking out for he's a post doctoral researcher in behavioral science at Northeastern University. And he's been influential in catching mistakes in publications and getting those papers retracted Heather says, there are two ways. He can tell a paper might have a problem one. Is you kind of spider senses research, which is very difficult to explain it's. A series of sticks. Slows kind of mental shortcuts about what might be wrong with something. When you read it and a lot of the time at tips, you often to the second thing that you do in the second thing that you do is try to mathematically determine if there's anything in the paper that you see that's inconsistent. If there's a test that doesn't work or numbers that kind exists store some something similar to that at least between the two of those. And of course, the fact that researches will tell you sometimes if they have papers in their areas that they don't trust they think of problems with sometimes they will tell someone like me. But isn't there already a system in place for this? I mean, if you get published in a peer review journal that is literally you putting your paper out into the scientific community, and then people get to comment. Well, that's absolutely what it is. And that's also not the end of the story peer review a lot of the time is. Very necessary and very good. The problem with it when it comes to research, that's really bad is that it's not really designed to detect problems. It's done with the assumption that everything that underlies the research is just fine. It's conducted under a kind of an umbrella of trust. There's not really a culture of strong criticism of bad science that happens through peer review, the other thing that happens. Of course, is that if you if I write a paper in the paper is deeply problematic, and it's rejected from journal and the journal writes back to the author and says, no, look, we don't believe any of this. This is wrong. This was done incorrectly. These mistakes that we can't explain all the authors will do is send it somewhere else. This is called journal shopping. Sometimes it happens, of course with papers that are perfectly fine and accurate as well. But eventually with a kind of a saying in science as you can get almost anything published somewhere James, the Wakefield study was eventually retracted but science is a discipline that builds on itself right with new research, citing old research, have you ever found anything like that something so that could have an effect on public health. There are things that are very similar to that. That's very ominous. Well, if that sounds ominous it probably should bad medical studies can tip lodger results one way or another. So imagine we have six studies and one of them is problematic for some reason. And when we add up the results of all the six studies, and we do a meta analysis that one individual bad study changes the outcome of the meta analysis that can influence how governments by drugs how frontline hospital care is conducted, and what is considered to be standard care as evidence based or not so evidence based so at its absolute worst. There's very definitely problems like that that exists right now, I'm afraid I can't really speculate any further than that right now. Right now.
